RARE collections of sermons and addresses by the eminent Jewish French rabbi and author Jacob Kaplan (1895-1994) who held rabbinical posts in Mulhouse, Alsace (1922), and in Paris (1929), worked with the resistance movement during the German occupation, served briefly as interim chief rabbi of France (1944) and later became chief rabbi of Paris (1950). He was appointed to the post of chief rabbi of France in 1955 and retired at the end of 1980 with the title of honorary chief rabbi. Apart from his Jewish scholarship, Kaplan was also a lecturer at l`Institut d`Etudes Politiques, a member of the Académie des Sciences Morales et Politiques in Paris and was known for his openness to dialogue with the Christian churches of France and for his staunch support of Zionism. He spoke out during World War II against anti-Jewish measures adopted by the collaborationist Vichy Government and openly proclaimed French Jewry`s solidarity with the State of Israel during the period of the Six-Day War and after, when French official policy was hostile to Israel. 185x120mm. 267 pages.
